STAMPS FOR CHRISTMAS
Pam will be ordering stamps for our Christmas Mail. Please think of how many stamps you might need.
As soon as we know if Jersey Post are reducing postage costs prior to Christmas, Pam will place an order from the Leprosy Mission for Local and UK stamps, and hopefully Europe. Please see Pam after the service on the 19th October or as soon as possible after that.
Used stamps are always gratefully received by Pam Turner (732710) for the Leprosy Mission.
Children and Adults welcome. Our new musical director, Graham Caldbeck, is recruiting and training a choir. It will have a practice usually on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 9.30am. Children will spend part of the service in Sunday School and then return to sing. Children only will receive £1 for practice and £1 if they stay on for Sunday School and Singing.
The next choir practices will be from 9.30am on the 7th December, 5.00pm on the 21st December and 10.00pm on the 24th December.

Their academic year is split in two so just over £500 has recently been sent out for fees and a travel grant. Very enthusiastic e-mails of thanks have come back.
Please do support the stall that Sarah runs with Evelyn each Sunday which raises money for this important cause and donations are always welcome as we need to send another £500 in January.
